Our Story

Dr. Karim Bouayad-Gervais, started Pillar Science because he was tired of the uneffective software tools used to manage research activities. Although he was using cutting-edge technology in the lab, his research team was still using unadapted information technology tools like Excel, Dropbox and emails to manage their research. Software programs were cumbersome, time consuming and did not really help manage important part of the research such as projects' progression, data management and equipement management. With the help of our co-founder Mathieu Tanguay, an expert in data security, they built Pillar Science, web-based software solutions to facilitate research management. This collaboration hub now helps industrial and academic organizations in North America, Europe and Asia streamline their research. We believe that we can empower researchers by offering accessible and modern ecosystems to accelerate collaborative discoveries.
